JONESBORO, Ga. -- Opening statements are scheduled to begin Thursday in the corruption trial of Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill.
The prosecution and defense decided upon the trial's 12 jurors and two alternates Wednesday.
Unlike Monday, there were no pro Victor Hill demonstrators outside the Clayton County Courthouse as potential jurors showed up for days two and three of the trial.
But that didn't stop the court from asking scores of potential jurors if they'd been influenced by those protestors or anything else about the controversial sheriff.
"Anyone familiar or believe they were familiar with 27 deputies getting fired on his first or second day in office?" defense attorney Steven Frey asked a group of jury prospects.
